July 4th Salute to Great Immigrants Who Help Make America Strong--from Carnegie Corporation of New York
Celebration of Naturalized Citizens with Public Service Ad and Tribute Website from the Foundation Established by Andrew Carnegie

NEW YORK, July 2, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This Independence Day, the Trustees and staff of Carnegie Corporation of New York invite all Americans to join in celebrating naturalized U.S. citizens whose contributions are vital to the fabric of our nation and the strength of our democracy.

July 4th Salute to Great Immigrants Who Help Make America Strong--from Carnegie Corporation of New York, @CarnegieCorp.

For the tenth year, the Corporation is honoring a distinguished group of immigrants and their accomplishments with a full-page public service ad in The New York Times. The 2015 "Great Immigrants: The Pride of America" initiative includes 38 individuals who have helped advance and enlighten our society, culture, and economy. In addition, the Corporation recognizes new citizens with a companion website at greatimmigrants.org, which includes the stories of many other naturalized citizens, video and audio recordings, and interactive quizzes. 

"Our founder, Andrew Carnegie, came to this country as the son of impoverished immigrants and grew up to become one of the greatest contributors to American industry and philanthropy," said Vartan Gregorian, President of the Corporation. "His devotion to U.S. democracy stemmed from his conviction that the new infusion of talent that immigrants bring to our country keeps American society vibrant."

The 38 Great Immigrants honored this year come from more than 30 countries around the world and represent leadership in a wide range of professions. They include U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara; higher education leaders Gabriel Esteban, Rakesh Khurana, and Ali Malekzadeh; Nobel laureates Arieh Warshel and Thomas C. Südhof; Google Engineering Director Craig Nevill-Manning; U.S. Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba; immigration attorney Rabia Chaudry; Metropolitan Museum of Art Director Thomas Campbell; Atlanta Braves coach Eddie Pérez; Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin; Pulitzer Prize-winners Geraldine Brooks and Anne Telnaes; actress Sofía Vergara; singer Thalía; television game show host Alex Trebek; and television producer Lorne Michaels.

Nearly nine million legal permanent residents are currently eligible to naturalize and become U.S. citizens. True to the mission of Andrew Carnegie, Carnegie Corporation of New York supports their civic engagement through the efforts of our grantees, particularly the network of nonprofits that forms the New Americans Campaign. The Corporation is proud to showcase their work and the stories of new and aspiring citizens on its dedicated, multimedia website greatimmigrants.org. Visitors will find easy-to-share videos, StoryCorps podcasts, interactive civics and immigration quizzes, a visual archive of Great Immigrants honorees from the past ten years, a timeline highlighting Andrew Carnegie's life as an immigrant, and an embeddable video featuring the inspiring life of an immigrant who fled civil war in Sierra Leone and is now an American success story.

Share in the celebration of "Great Immigrants: The Pride of America" online and continue the discussion on Facebook and on Twitter @CarnegieCorp, #GreatImmigrants.
